Katie and Jeff wanted their winter wedding to be warm, inviting and The Ryland Inn was the perfect location to host their stunning wedding reception. Katie looked absolutely breathtaking in her lace wedding dress from Gabriella and Jimmy Choo shoes. Before Katie saw Jeff, she shared a special moment with her dad in her childhood home. She could barely make it down the staircase without crying and the expression on her Father's face says it all, he was in awe of his gorgeous daughter. When Jeff saw Katie during their first look, he shared similar emotions. Their wedding day was here and he couldn't wait to make her his wife!
We headed to an old Christmas Tree Farm to take their bridal party photos and bride and groom portraits. Katie wore her mother's mink stowe to keep her warm in the chilly air. Stunning! The bridesmaids wore black dresses from J.Crew along with grey pashmina scarves that Katie have gifted the girls earlier that day. Pops of red in their bouquets brightened up the grey of the winter day. One of the most touching moments throughout their church ceremony was when Jeff reached out across aisle to hold Katie's hand as the priest told a few stories about the couple. Afterwards, the church roared with excitement as the couple officially became husband and wife. Finally, we traveled to The Ryland Inn, where guests were treated to delicious hors d'oeuvres and music from New Power Soul.
The newlyweds shared their first dance and toasted to their new marriage with the help of the maid of honor and best man. Once the party got started, no one was seated in their seats and the band took to the dance floor to get in the middle of the excitement. Katie and Jeff are an absolute perfect match for each other and I'm so honored I was able to be with them on their wedding day. Their families were so warm and welcoming that it was hard to leave at the end of the night. Wishing you lots of love and happiness for many years to come! Congratulations Newlyweds! xo
